3 Reasons for Choosing Live-in Care in Southampton

Discover the benefits of live-in care in Southampton, an ideal choice for couples, those with dementia, and those wanting to stay living at home in the area..

You may have heard about Live-in Care, but not be clear on when this could be the right option for you or your loved ones. With various care options available, it’s important to select one that fits with your needs. 

Here we explore three reasons why families we work with are choosing live-in care as the most suitable option for them.

1. A Supportive Solution for Couples

It is not uncommon for couples to need assistance as they grow older together. And many older couples are reluctant to be separated after a lifetime together or perhaps one spouse is shouldering the responsibilities of becoming a caregiver. That’s where live-in care can shine. It provides a solution that allows couples to continue living together in their own home. Our Care Professional lives with you, and are able to deliver tailored support, covering everything from personal care to home help – all in the family home. This means routines can continue with minimal disruption, a family caregiver can relax knowing support is onhand, and live-in care means preserving many of the familiar routines that couples have built together at home.

2. Specialised Care for Those Living with Dementia

Living with dementia can be challenging, not just for the individual but also for their families. It requires a specific type of support; one that fosters a familiar and safe environment. Home Instead Southampton’s live-in care includes specially trained Care Professionals who understand the intricacies of dementia, and can offer one to one support at home. We adapt our care approach as needs evolve, ensuring a level of continuity and security that can be lost in other care settings.
